This beautifully produced, definitive work on one of Canada's most notorious train robbers is now available. It is largely based on restricted and private sources never before published. The tragic facts of the guilt and innocence of two men, one a tubercular Canadian school teacher and the other a reclusive American on the run from unknown events across the border, are revealed. The wealth of detail presented by the author will enable the reader to render judgement on whether the jury and the manipulated public opinion of 100 years ago were right or wrong. After years of painstaking research, the story of the mysterious Third Man and how retributiion finally caught up to him is told in stark detail. Watch for upcoming publicity in BC Bookworld News and historical journals across the country.
